I clicked on "new downloads available" from chrs.transcriptiondiscs below.

It took me to a site with many options to donate but few options to download.

After an hour of searching, I managed to find a download, it ended up being an encrypted 53MB zip file with no password available.

It appears that this site is being recommended by Archive.org

"Are chrs.transcriptiondiscs spam?"

Yeah, I'd say so, and being 'non-profit' does not give anyone unlimited special rights. Advertising is advertising, and it cheapens the forum.

Having said that, the final decision rests with those who run archive.org, but I thought that they would have done something by now. Perhaps they were waiting to see how the OTR community felt and reacted, so let's call this post a petition.

Thanks for raising the point, C.S.

OK, I finally found out that the password is there, but is in code.
A different password for each download.
It is harder to find than the clues in a Phyl Coe mystery.
But it is there and I am not so pissed off anymore.
